Mrs. Oluwafunke

Sex is usually the last thing on my mind.  I go to bed tired and worn out. The last thing I will think about is sex. I slapped my husband one day when he started touching me. I was having a nightmare and thought the sensation I was feeling was from my dream.   I didn’t know when I slapped him. I had to ask, were you the one I slapped just now?.” It wasn’t funny that day, I had to tender series of apologies and that was the end. The country is too tough now, my sister. Stress is on a high level.

That was before when there was money and food at home. I don’t even have the energy to do that regularly again.  I hardly eat two times a day now because of recession.


Tunde Ahmed

Sex is not my priority for now. I have attempted it with my wife twice and she insulted me. She asked me the last time I gave her money for housekeeping. She asked if I had paid the house rent and the children’s school fees. I had to respect myself and changed my position.


Isaac Adefola

Sex shouldn’t be an everyday thing.  It should just be once a while.  The rate at which I engage in it has reduced drastically.  I have to think of how to feed my family and pay our bills before I think of pleasure.  I can stay for two months or more without having sex.

I don’t usually initiate it since recession started.  My wife has really been of help to me since recession started, so, I am going at her pace. If she wants it, fine

If not , it is okay with me. Unless I see her in a very joyful mood. If not, I don’t bother her about it.  I have put her through a lot in the last one year.  She is the one practically financing everything.

It is just once in a while we have sex. I am usually tired at night.  After work, I have another small business I do which I have to attend to every day. Even if it is just one hour I spend there , it would fetch us some money at the end of the month.

Recession or no recession, I don’t like sex. I just give in so as not to punish my husband.  I can stay for months without having sex.


Afam Felix

A lot of families have reduced the frequency at which they have sex because of recession . A friend of mine has been having issues with his wife because of that. The wife doesn’t give in to him as much as before . She’s always quarreling that he doesn’t leave money for the house upkeep, so he shouldn’t ask for sex.


Joseph Peters

It is just once in a while we have sex. My thing doesn’t rise like before again. I don’t have money to eat good food, so it can’t rise. It is only when I eat and belly full that I would think of sex. I am still owing school fees and  house rent , the least of my worries now is sex.
